Tropical forests are common in areas around the equator, i.e. between $$10° N and 10° S$$ latitude at elevations below$$3,000$$ feet. The tropical forest biome has several sub-biomes, including evergreen rainforest, seasonal deciduous forest, tropical cloud forest, and mangrove forest. These sub-biomes develop due to changes in seasonal patterns of rainfall, elevation and substrate.
Tropical forests are the Earth’s most complex biome in terms of both structure and species diversity. It has the highest biodiversity and primary productivity of any of the terrestrial biomes due to abundant precipitation and year-round warmth. Tropical forest regions get rainfall of over $$250cm$$ a year.
